1 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips

1 cup unalted butter

1  cup granulated sugar

1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1 cup Super Sprout™ Rye Flour

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (regular or dark)

2 tsp kosher salt

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 cup sourdough discard hydrated at 100% (or slightly more)

1/2 cup 80% or greater chocolate

1/4 cup semi-sweet morsels if desired


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a 13x9 pan with parchment paper (enough to come out over the edges a bit)

2. Melt chocolate chips and butter together, stirring frequently to keep from sticking. Slow and medium heat is better than high heat and fast execution here. Melt until mixture is smooth.

3. Off heat, whisk sugars into chocolate and butter quickly, then once combined, let cool for 15 minutes.

4. While that's cooling, mix flour, cocoa, and salt together and set aside.

5. Whisk eggs and vanilla into chocolate mixture, then fold in flour mixture slowly until combined. Then add sourdough culture and all but 1/4 cup of chocolate chips (if you want them on top, otherwise add to batter now).

6. Spread evenly into pan, making sure to move batter to all four corners. Bake 35-40 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Sprinkle left over chocolate chips if you'd like and pop them back in the over for 2 minutes to melt as desired. Let cool completely (if you can!) then cut divide and share.

Note: You can also add pecans or other nuts to these brownies, in step 5 and step 6 if needed.
